Houses & Council

School Houses

There are 6 six houses in Ewelme. These are named after people who are important in the family history of the school’s founder, Alice Chaucer.

Houses meet to debate and make decisions about selected aspects of the school and often work together at sports events and on special curriculum days.

Every child is placed in a house and these houses compete for house points throughout the week. Awards are usually given at an achievement assembly at the end of the week. At the end of the term, points are totalled to find the overall winning house. The house captains immediately take possession of the Cup which is filled with lots of treats!

These are our houses with their emblems and colours:

de la pole De La Pole (Blue)  de-la-pole-crest
montagu Montagu (Purple)  montagu-crest
chaucer Chaucer (Orange)  chaucer-crest
gaunt Gaunt (Red)  gaunt-crest
burghersh Burghersh (Yellow)  burghersh-crest
roet Roet (Green)  roet-crest

School Council

We have a school council that meets regularly to discuss issues raised in the school community and take responsibility for promoting and implementing ‘green’ policies and charitable activities.

Congratulations to the School Council…for submitting a school project to the Speaker’s School Council Awards 2017. To celebrate this achievement we have been awarded a badge from The Houses of Parliament to show on our website.
